Oh okay. I will accept you debate. I do not believe they have a bigger impact in subsequent elections because of the gridlock in politics, they are just playing childish and affecting our nation growth and causing the people to suffer more. It make them look like a 'tough guy' and one who does not compromise, which the American people do not want. They want their Politicians to compromise. Once the people eyes start to open, they will realize the truth and change the normal game such an example is Eric Cantor, a major figure in Washington.

I look forward to our debate.

What I basically mean by "a better shot" is that they will have a bigger impact in subsequent elections because of the gridlock in politics, not really because of funding etc.

If you speaking of political candidates having a better shot than before, are you speaking in terms of political campaigns and in appealing to the general public as I'm assuming? If yes, I agree with such statement, but I believe that political candidates have lost real touch with the public in that they do not do the traditional debates, listen to the concern of the people, and see them behind just advertisements. Political advertisements, PACS, and money now dictates political candidates so of course they have a better shot due to the advancement of technologies such as Facebook, twitter, smart phones, and the 'glorious' advertisements.
